Name That Wolverine Artist!

Every Monday, I will be sharing four panels featuring a comic book character. They will each be drawn by four separate pencilers. I will be featuring only pieces of art where the penciler did full pencils (as otherwise it would be way too difficult). Your challenge is to, simply put, name that artist!

E-mail me your guesses to bcronin@comicbookresources.com. Do NOT make guesses in the comments section! When I post the new challenge, I’ll post the correct answers for the previous on the archive page along with whoever guessed them correctly. You don’t have to name the issues the panels came from, but if you’d like to, knock yourself out.

Read on for the four Wolverine panels…



Remember, don’t answer in the comments section. E-mail me your guesses at bcronin@comicbookresources.com.



Good luck and have fun!


I think I’ve only ever seen #3. And when a Wolverine artist draws the claws like #4, I never understood how those big ends fit back into his hands.

1 is DEFINITELY not Herb Trimpe.
2 is DEFINITELY not Dave Cockrum.
3 is DEFINITELY not John Byrne.
4 is DEFINITELY not Frank Miller.

So, what’s my prize?

In that first pic Wolverine is missing on of his teeth and has the cigar sticking through the hole where it should be.

That said it’s pics 2 and 4 which are really poor.

I wish he’d go back to the black and brown…

Don’t worry, Dan. The tooth’ll grow back.

That’s issue was penciled by four Jim Lee copycats one of them was Fabio Laguna,I can’t remember the others… But that one was a very lame issue!

i don’t know
but all of them sucks

I would say :
1 – Dave Hoover or early’s Adam Kubert
2 – Chris Marrinan
3 – Mike S. Miller
4 – Darick Robertson

My favorite part of this feature being yearlong is the 52 times people will ignore the email only rule.

Who are four artists who have never been in my kitchen?

Douglock – you might well be right with your #4 guess (which I won’t name in the hope that Brian doesn’t remove my post when he removes yours) – but that just confirms my opinion that (s)he’s not suited to standard superhero comics.

sorry ! ^^ did not see the lines lost between pictures

I have very issue of Wolverine and I can not name one of them! What does that say about me as a nerd?

Yeah, these are 4 pretty bad renditions, which will make it interesting to see if any of them are from the early careers of good artists. #2 *almost* looks like it could be early early Tim Sale, at least in the way Wolverine’s pose and proportions are drawn. But I’m pretty sure it’s not, which is why I didn’t think twice to say it here.

That yellow and blue costume is always hard to pull off.

These are really hard! I thought I was going to slam dunk these because I’m a Wolverine Superfan, but number three is the only one I’m confident on. Number one I have a few theories, but 2 and four are real head scratchers for me.

The 3rd one is Jamal Igle the others have me stumped

I swear that you try to find the worst art on these things.

Ahh, Pat Broderick! Whatever happened to him? Liked his Captain Marvel and Firestorm work.
